Frequently asked questions

What is the purpose of a French drain?

A French drain evacuates water from around the foundation walls, preventing the accumulation of water in the area and keeping water from seeping into the walls. The water collected by the drain is carried to the catchment basin (sump), which discharges it through your home’s drainage system.

How long does a French drain last?

A French drain generally begins to deteriorate after 25 years, but can be functional for up to 40 years. If your home is showing signs of moisture and your drain hasn’t yet exhausted its service life, an inspection using a camera inserted into the drain may be needed.

What are the signs that a French drain needs to be repaired or replaced?

There are a number of clues that might make you think your French drain should be inspected, the most common being: cracks in the foundation, the appearance of a whitish crust on the concrete walls of your basement, mold on the drywall, or water that seeps into the basement after heavy rains or snowmelt.
